LOS ANGELES - A NASA mission to monitor global warming from space ended on Tuesday when a satellite plunged into the ocean near Antarctica minutes after launch.
An equipment malfunction was apparently to blame, officials said.
The loss of the $US280 million ($AU433 million) mission came a month after Japan launched the world's first spacecraft to track global warming emissions.
